's hard to deny the increasing every year the popularity of Japanese culture.And it is not only evident in movies, music and cooking - now in many homes can be found quite a Japanese interior, including a distinctive and furniture, and walls, and the ceiling in the Japanese style.
So if you are among the fans of the culture of the rising sun - this article is for you!
ceilings Construction of ceilings Japanese
So ceilings in Japanese style - what are they?
single standard in this respect, of course, does not exist - and indeed can not exist in principle.That's why the Japanese style would be logical to include the ceiling, fit perfectly into the overall design of the eastern areas.
Yet some similarities with the Japanese ceilings can be identified - and they are the starting points in the design of our ceiling.
- basic geometric shapes of ceilings is a square or rectangle - regardless of its size .
rectangular shape can have an entire ceiling and its individual elements, ceiling lights in the Japanese style, etc.
This is due, primarily, to traditional Japanese architecture, in which the preference for simple geometric shapes.
- to the ceiling in the Japanese style is preferable to use natural materials - wood, fabric, sometimes - paper .
Naturally, also allowed the use of artificial materials, such as laminated plastic or synthetic fabric.
- As for the colors of the Japanese ceiling, it must be maintained in light shades .
Figures on the ceiling is quite appropriate - but only if it will be a reproduction of the Japanese watercolors unobtrusive and soft colors.
Attention!But Chinese ceiling, on the contrary, can be enough to paint in bright colors.Yes, and a variety of drawings to plot such a ceiling is immeasurably greater than the Japanese.
ceiling in the interior
Ideally, of course, the ceiling in the Japanese style must be installed in all areas - but, in the same style to be framed the whole apartment.This means that on the floor instead of the traditional rugs should be based on the mats, the walls should be finished in white paper with a minimum of wallpaper patterns.
also can not forget about the ceiling lights in the eastern style - in fact in the interior will be totally out of place modern chandeliers, and even more - LED or fluorescent lights of the office type.
But most Japanese-style decorated one of the rooms of the apartment - office, bedroom or living room.
And here are a few options for finishing the ceiling:
- Japanese ceiling in the office optimally divided into squares large enough area - so we will be able to visually increase the traditionally small area of the room .
This bridge between the squares do quite contrasting - for example, dark wood or materials that mimic its color and texture.
- Living, usually characterized by a larger area .That's why there can be combined the ceiling around the perimeter set suspension structure of gypsum boards, and in the center - a suspended ceiling or in an appropriate style.
Attention!Large living room area allows us to install the chandelier ceiling in the Japanese style.In this small room chandelier will look awkward, but over a large area - just right.
- Bedroom - another suitable place for finishing the ceiling in the eastern style .One of the most innovative solutions for the bedroom is a solid (ie, not divided into squares) suspended ceiling, lit from within.
Interior lighting should be contrasted with dark beams on the perimeter of the ceiling, besides - we can not install ceiling light fixtures in the Japanese style, but to limit the functional wall lighting.
Technology installation of ceilings Japanese
ceiling on the traditional Japanese technology
Now we try to understand how it is possible to make ceilings Japanese hands.And we start with the most sophisticated technology - mounting a full-beamed ceilings.
- based on traditional Japanese system of ceiling of wooden beams on the ceiling.Installed ceiling beams is divided into squares, which are tightened with a cloth or paper thin frames.
- start the installation of the ceiling to mark the ceiling.On the ceiling concrete slab inflict lines which will strengthen our support beams.
Attention!The wooden houses bearing capacity is insufficient for fixing ceiling beams.In this case, you should either lay the beams in the original design, the edges of the beams fell on the load-bearing walls, or else - use other finishing technology.
- By marking is attached to the ceiling with wooden beams using anchor bolts.Between a longitudinal and transverse beams are held together by metal brackets.
- timber - or before installation, or already on the ceiling - treat stains or paint in the selected color.
- measures the size of cells obtained between bars.The size of the cells of thin slats or aluminum profile frame manufacture, which stretch the finishing material.As a finishing material, we can use a cloth or heavy paper bamboo mat.
- in the central cell instead of the frame with the material set the ceiling light in the Japanese style.
Naturally, this method is very time-consuming finishing.But there are other technologies to mount a ceiling in the style of yin - yang without the involvement of significant financial resources.
ceiling suspension systems on the basis of «Armstrong»
ceiling "Armstrong" - an excellent basis for the production of the ceiling in the Japanese style.Naturally, such a ceiling is a simulation - but in appearance they are not much inferior beam construction.
- begins installation of ceilings, as expected, with the marking overlap.The ceiling is aligned with the plane with the help of a level.
- fasten around the room starting a profile that will ensure rigidity and fixing the ceiling to the walls.
- Focusing on the marks on the ceiling, fasten hangers, which brings together the framework for our future ceiling.
- and then start the actual transformation of the ceiling "Armstrong" in the ceiling in an oriental style: the lower surface of the frame decorate a tree.The easiest way to do it - dark paint color of the profile.You can also paste over the frame of the polymer adhesive film under the tree.
- ceiling tiles also decorate: on their bottom surface or pasted cloth or paper, or the already mentioned a bamboo mat.
Set decorate plate in the frame - and get ready to ceiling.It remains only to establish a ceiling lamp in an oriental style, which should emphasize the stylistic unity of the interior.
easiest way to install a Japanese-ceiling - a Mounting tension system.However, self-install high-quality stretch ceiling you are unlikely to succeed, so it will have to seek professional help.
But opting for stretch ceiling, you can not limit yourself in terms of design: modern manufacturers offer a wide range of decoration for the ceiling that turns your room into a real Japanese home.This traditional ornaments, and Japanese watercolors and a fabric ceiling.
also suspended ceiling provides an opportunity to "play with light": you can mount the internal ceiling lights, LED strips along the perimeter of the ceiling or chandelier in the Japanese style - and to include this or that coverage is optional.
as possible as you can see, it is quite enough.So if you are determined to equip your apartment ceilings Japanese - choose the most suitable and get to work!
